The national data opt-out enables patients to set or update their choice regarding how their confidential patient information is used for purposes of planning and research, except for certain circumstances.
The opt-out choice is set directly by the patient, either online or via a supported national telephone service without the involvement of the General Practice.
Please see the below document which explains all about the National Data Opt-Out including instructions for registering your choice/preference.
